The first day of spring is March 20th!
In the last week I have personally observed two vehicles run traffic control devices. Take time now to meet with your drivers and discuss the upcoming days ahead as the temperature will increase and we will see the sun more often. For most of us, it has been a long winter. Caution your drivers on complacency and inattention. As a safety director, it seemed that my worst accidents occurred during the months of March and April. My drivers had spent the entire winter, being alert for changing road conditions, traffic and weather. When the road conditions improved and the weather was extremely enjoyable, it was then that they let down their guard down and an accident occurred. Take the time now to caution drivers and reinforce good defensive driving behavior.
